On 2nd June 2016, Shar Gaden Monastery along with many disciples across the globe celebrated the 13th birthday of H.E. Domo Chocktrul Rinpoche, the third incarnation in the line of Domo Geshe Rinpoches.
In the spring of 2008, the current incarnation of Domo Geshe Rinpoche was enthroned in Samten Choling Monastery in Ghoom, in Tashi Choling Monastery in Kurseong, and in Enchey House, the ancestral home of the previous Domo Geshe Rinpoche, in Gangtok, Sikkim.
The hair-cutting and final enthronement ceremonies took place on 21st June 2008 at Gangjong Namgyal, presided over by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche and His Eminence Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche. Also in attendance were Venerable Achok Rinpoche, His Eminence Gangchen Rinpoche, Venerable Zawa Rinpoche and Lama Michel Rinpoche.
As Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche said at the beginning of the ceremony, the young tulku was recognised in order for him “to continue his activities for the flourishing of the teachings of the Buddha, particularly for the teachings of the great master Je Tsong Khapa.” Given the name Losang Jigme Nyak-gi Wangchuk, the young tulku is now engaged in traditional monastic studies at Shar Gaden Monastery.
As H.E. Domo Chocktrul Rinpoche enters his teenage years, he is one step closer to becoming a great, erudite Dharma master who spreads the brightest jewels of Dharma in the ten directions, thus fulfilling the prediction of Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche.
Happy Birthday Your Eminence Domo Chocktrul Rinpoche! May You live a long and healthy life and stay for hundreds of aeons to water the seeds of Bodhicitta and help innumerable sentient beings to attain Buddhahood.
